TBILISI, October 2 (Itar-Tass) —— The Georgian Dream coalition has scored 54.2 percent of the vote in Georgian parliamentary elections, the country’s Central Election Commission said on Tuesday after counting votes at 73 percent of polling stations.
As of 20:00 Moscow time, the Central Election Commission received preliminary results from 2,743 out of 3,766 polling stations (about 73 percent). The ruling coalition United National Movement so far has won 41.2 percent of the vote. Preliminary results of the parliamentary polls are expected by midnight, when data from 95 percent of polling stations are counted.
The Georgian Dream coalition was formed in April 2012 by billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili. It unites six parties, namely Georgian Dream – Democratic Georgia, the Republican Party, Our Georgia – Free Democrates, National Forum, the Conservative Party, and the political union Industry Saves Georgia.
The 150-seat parliament is elected for a term of four years. Seventy seven lawmakers are elected by proportional party tickets, and 73 – in majority constituencies. Ivanishvili has already said his coalition is going to win about 110 seats.
